Our Enterprise architects work with stakeholders, both leadership and subject matter experts, to build a holistic view of the client’s strategy, processes, information, and information technology assets. The role of the enterprise architect is to ensure that the business and IT are in alignment linking the business mission, strategy, and processes of a client to its IT strategy. The Architect documents this using multiple architectural models or views that show how the current and future needs of an organization will be met in an efficient, sustainable, agile, and adaptable manner.
The Solution Architect role will primarily be responsible for providing architecture and design leadership for multiple development teams (project managers, tech leads, scientific business analyst, developers) to coordinate design and development of cohesive solutions.
Our Solutions Architects provide guidance to development teams to ensure solutions align with the enterprise architecture as well as to work with the Enterprise Architecture team in ensuring the architecture is realized to support effective solution delivery at the project level. The Solution Architect will also lead technical proofs of concept aimed at proving solution patterns and validating EA principles and guidelines.
Our Systems Architects are interfacing with the users and sponsors and all other stakeholders in order to determine their evolving needs; generating the highest level of system requirements, based on the user's needs and other constraints such as cost and schedule. The level of expertise ensures that this set of high level requirements is consistent, complete, correct, and operationally defined.
Systems Architects perform cost-benefit analyses to determine whether requirements are best met by manual, software, or hardware functions; making maximum use of commercial off-the-shelf or already developed components. They are interfacing with the design and implementation engineers and architects, so that any problems arising during design or implementation can be resolved in accordance with the fundamental design concepts. In addition, they ensure that all architectural products and products with architectural input are maintained in the most current state and never allowed to become obsolete.
Our Data Architects are critical in ensuring that the data assets of our clients are supported by a data architecture that aids the organization in achieving its strategic goals. The data architecture includes databases, data integration and the means to get to the data.
Data architects are responsible for developing and maintaining a formal description of the data and data structures - this can include data definitions, data models, data flow diagrams, as well as metadata management, business semantics, data modeling and metadata workflow management.
Strong skills in Logical Data modeling, Physical Data modeling, development of a data strategy and associated polices are common attributes of our successful Data Architects.
Business and Systems Analysts
Our Business Analysts are experienced and have the ability to work across a number of Methodologies (primarily Agile and Waterfall) and projects simultaneously. The Business Analyst must liaise with stakeholders to understand organization structure, policies, and operations. They then recommend enabling solutions aligned with project goals.
To qualify for these roles, you must be able to capture strategic business goals, capabilities, and roles across products; understand current and future industry trends and how this may change the business processes or data flow. Successful BA’s are able to model business capabilities including elements across process, organization, information and technology as well as define the data elements shared across products and the relationships between those data elements and processes, people, systems, and other data elements.
Working among a variety of technologies, our Software Engineers are experts in the design, development and installation of software solutions. They determine operational feasibility by evaluating analysis, problem definition, requirements, solution development, and proposed solutions.
These solutions are developed by studying information needs; conferring with users; studying systems flow, data usage, and work processes; investigating problem areas; following the software development lifecycle. We encourage and support our Consultants to update their job knowledge by studying state-of-the-art development tools, programming techniques, and computing equipment; participating in educational opportunities; reading professional publications; maintaining personal networks; and participating in professional organizations.
Project and Program Managers
Our Project and Program Managers are experts in planning, executing, and finalizing projects according to strict deadlines and within budget. This includes acquiring resources and coordinating the efforts of team members and third-party contractors or consultants in order to deliver projects according to plan. The Project Manager will also define the project’s objectives and oversee quality control throughout its life cycle.
